Your favorite place to be on the mountain is out in the open bowls arcing huge high-speed turns. But when the clouds move in and the wind is screaming, you can’t see a thing in front of you. You can’t tell which way is up or down, your stomach is turning, and you’re starting to feel dizzy. This can be an intimidating situation and stops even the most seasoned experts dead in their tracks. But you’ve got to keep on moving. Don’t let whiteout situations ruin your day. Here’s how to get down the hill safely and have a little fun in the soup while you’re at it.
You hit the park but only after the pow is tracked. So you need a ski that won't let you down on rails but can handle the rest of the mountain. These are for you.
Because you don't want to send a ski torpedoing down the slope getting first tracks without you.
Setting a bootpack is as simple as hiking up hill with skis on your back, but doing it efficiently can leave you some gas in the tank for another lap.
